Do you ever feel like even though everything seems to be ticking along fine, you just feel low in your mood?
You feel a bit down, like there’s a little cloud following you around and casting a shadow over how you’re feeling?
Maybe you feel like this a lot, maybe you feel like this sometimes, maybe you feel like this around 3pm every day when you get that afternoon slump and you’re craving a coffee to give you the boost to get you through the rest of the day (like me!).
There are obviously lots of things that impact how we feel. You need to feel like you’re doing meaningful work, you need to feel healthy and eat the right foods, be happy in your relationships, get good sleep etc. etc…I’m sure you can think of things straight away that you know impact how you feel. Today though is more for those of you that are doing many of these things, are generally happy, but like I described at the start of the piece, sometimes you just can’t shake the down feeling.
So, today I’m sharing with you a few things that you can do that involve being in ‘motion’…in other words moving your body.
There is a lot of good research and science that links movement, so exercise and other modalities that show irrefutably that exercise and moving are directly correlated with a positive mood, as well as having other associated health benefits including better functional capacity. So I dig into this today…and I have to warn you, some silliness takes place. But you probably guessed that!
What do you think? Do you already do any of these things….I can’t be the only one dancing around their office at 3 in the afternoon?
I’d love to hear from you if you do this as as well. What’s your favourite tune…I’ll be sharing mine over on Facebook so click here to see what I boogie to!
